Mon Nov 06, 2006 1:34 am

FedEx Corporation (NYSE: FDX) announced today that its FedEx Express unit has signed an agreement to acquire its Indian service provider, Prakash Air Freight Pvt. Ltd. (PAFEX) for US$30 million, payable in cash. The transaction, which is subject to customary conditions including Indian government approval, will further extend the FedEx leadership position in the global express industry with a wholly-owned operation in one of the world’s fastest growing markets.

  • FedEx was the first express company to introduce an all cargo flight in India in 1997.
  • FedEx began the first overnight express service between India and China in 2005.
  • FedEx was the first express air cargo company to operate two gateways in India (Mumbai and Delhi), with a total of 16 MD-11 flights in and out per week.
